Doris S. Witzel, 97

Northborough/Sudbury – Doris S. Witzel, 97, daughter of the late Arthur and Sarah Scoones, wife of the late Walter H. Witzel. She was born in New York Aug. 21, 1905 and left us peacefully Oct. 15, 2012 at Coleman House in Northborough.

She is survived by her son, John A. Witzel and daughter-in-law Gayle Witzel; her granddaughter and her husband, Jennifer & Michael Michalik; her grandson, Paul Witzel; her beloved great-grandchildren, Emily & Andrew Michalik; and her brothers, Gerald and William Scoones and their families.

In the 1940s, Doris worked as a dedicated Secretary at the Rome Army Air Field, N.Y., and had her pilot's license before her driver's license. Eventually settling down in Sudbury, she pioneered a babysitter placement service and liked to entertain, cook, play bridge, and travel. Retiring to Rindge, N.H. and Acton, and ultimately to Northborough, she also enjoyed reading, bird watching, and doting on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She lived a long and happy life, full of love, friends and family. Doris will be missed by all.

Services and burial at Cathedral of the Pines, Rindge, N.H. are private.
